Imagine you have an hourly lesson each week, next week comes and you jump into the driving school car...what can you remember from last week? What abilities have you been able to retain from last week? The thing is, you could be spending as much as 30 minutes to recap, that is 30 minutes lost time. So what if you are needing a 30 minute recap on a 2 hour lesson? It means for every 1 hour you are throwing away 15 minutes and with the average number of hours being 47 you could be wasting as many as 10 to 12 hours.
The solution to this is simple, save up and take 2 two hour lessons a week, you are condensing your learning, you forget less, you remember and retain more knowledge. Just this simple tip alone could save you around £250.
Another £300 Saving...
Since you have decided to condense your lessons as described above you are going to eliminate the need for learning to drive with a parent, also known as private practice and that can be expensive. Let's just say the cost of insurance, fuel, and the cost of depreciation to brakes, discs, pads, tyres, alloys, and clutch comes to just £25 a week. Many learners taking private practice could have a car insured for 3 or 4 months, so just taking 12 weeks at £25 a week, you are hitting £300. 15 weeks at £30 a week is £450.
